Art show features work of Gig Harbor artist Celia Jane Henson

Gig Harbor resident Celia Jane Henson will be featured in an art show set to run Jan. 2 to 30 at The Black Dog Arts Cafe in Snoqualmie.

More than 50 pieces of Henson’s original artwork will be on display at this exhibition.

Henson’s work has previously appeared as part of the “Women of the Pacific Northwest; Past, Present and Future” show held in the fall at the Wikstrom Brothers Gallery in Seattle.

“Women of the Pacific Northwest” featured the work of 20 Pacific Northwest artists, including Henson.

Henson is a self-taught artist and has worked with a variety of mediums, ranging from candle making and leaf casting to gold leafing and writing.

The inspiration behind her newest exhibit sprung from her “spiritual connection to the natural world and demonstrates her love for nature,” Henson said in a release.

A Seattle native, Henson has lived in Gig Harbor for more than 20 years.

The Black Dog Arts Cafe is located at 8062 Railroad Avenue SE, in Snoqualmie.
